Description
"A picture is worth a thousand words but the photograph art historian Vicky Bliss has just received gives rise to a thousand questions instead. At first glance it appears to be the famous portrait of Frau Schliemann adorned in the gold of Troy. But closer study reveals the picture to be contemporary -- which is odd since Vicky knows the Trojan gold vanished sometime around the end of World War Two. And if she needed further proof that something was terribly amiss, a quick look at the blood-stained envelope the photo arrived in should do the trick. Yet Vicky is not the only expert to receive this mysterious mailing. And the entire circle is gathering for a festive Bavarian Christmas -- one, hopefully, to be made even more festive by the rediscovery of an ancient lost treasure. But the celebration could prove to be short -- and bloody -- courtesy of a very determined killer in their midst"--P. [4] of cover.
